FDA and Electronic Common Technical Document- By Compliance Global Inc.

Online Event



Starting in May of 2017, NDA, ANDA, BLA and Master File documentation must be submitted to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the new standard electronic common technical documentation (CTD) format.

In addition, beginning in May 2018, all commercial IND submissions to FDA must be filed in eCTD publishing format as well. The CTD format was developed to assemble all the Quality, Safety and Efficacy information in a common format. This format has revolutionized the regulatory review processes in the US, Europe and Japan. It has also led to harmonized electronic submissions that, in turn, enabled implementation of good review practices. For industries, it has eliminated the need to reformat the information for submission to the different International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) regulatory authorities.

The CTD is organized into five modules. Module 1 is region specific and Modules 2, 3, 4 and 5 are intended to be common for all regions. In July 2003, the CTD became the mandatory format for new drug applications in the EU and Japan, and the strongly recommended format of choice for NDAs submitted to the FDA.

Why Should You Attend:

Today’s competitive global health care market demands that product manufacturers commercialize their products with expediency. There are many global markets for which there is an unmet medical need for safe and effective therapies, including orphan drug markets, pediatric care, oncology and infectious diseases. Challenges included in the backdrop of this scenario include, regulatory as well as reimbursement and pricing challenges. In addition, regulatory requirements to obtain marketing approval can differ substantially between global markets, and regulatory professionals must often meet and complete a wide variety of regulatory submissions, depending on the geographic market of interest.

One of the complexities associated with compilation of clinical and regulatory data into the eCTD guidelines format is transitioning from the standard FDA Form 1571 and FDA Form 356h format to the CTD modular format. Although from a theoretical perspective, the content of a CTD submission should not differ substantially from the traditional paper based regulatory formats, regulatory professionals may often be confused by the CTD modular format. In addition, when each module must be completed in an electronic format that is compatible with FDA software compliance, issues may arise with an inability for FDA to recognize the software utilized by a particular manufacturer.
